About the Leo Baeck Institute, New York – Library – Books Collection
The Library of the Leo Baeck Institute is internationally recognized as the most comprehensive repository for books documenting the history and culture of German-speaking Jewry. Over 80,000 volumes and 1,600 periodical titles provide important primary and secondary material. Rich in rarities ranging from early 16th century writings to Moses Mendelssohn and Heinrich Heine, first editions and dedication copies of works by more recent prominent writers, many of its volumes were salvaged from famous Jewish libraries that were confiscated and dispersed by the Nazis.
Monographs from Leo Baeck Institute Digitized by Internet Archive
The Library of the Leo Baeck Institute has been making its library collections more accessible by digitizing important parts of its collection which are in the public domain. Among the published works we have already digitized are rare books, illustrated books and artist portfolios, and rare pamphlet collections. After several years of digitizing these works at the Gruss-Lipper Digital Laboratory in the Center for Jewish History, LBI began partnering with Internet Archives to digitize further works in 2013. You can browse books digitized by Internet Archive below or view this overview of all LBI's book digitization projects.
